Woman Files For Divorce Over The Way Her Husband Eats Peas
UPI ^ | Jan. 3, 2014 | Evan Bleier

Posted on 01/03/2014 1:38:42 PM PST by nickcarraway

A woman in Kuwait found the way her husband ate his peas to be such a “shocking sight” that she filed for divorce after they had only been married for a week. The woman decided that her husband’s habit of eating peas with bread instead of a fork was an issue that they could not work out.

That’s not the only recent divorce that has nothing to do with infidelity, abuse or communication issues.

Another woman recently filed for divorce because of the way her husband squeezes toothpaste. “We are always arguing,” she reportedly told her lawyer. “I keep telling him that he should squeeze in the end of the tube, but he stubbornly refuses and keeps squeezing it in the middle. He is so obstinate.”

It’s not always just the ladies…

In another recent case, a man ended things with his wife because she wouldn’t bring him a glass of water. After she told him that there was a servant who could do it, they had an argument and he told her their marriage was over.

“One critical issue is that many spouses should use their engagement period to know each other well enough to decide whether they should go on with their union,” said a Kuwaiti legalist. “The traditional times when spouses really met each other after their marriage are over, so there are now good opportunities to know the future life partner and decide whether he or she is the right one.”

I eat my peas with honey,
I've done it all my life.
It makes the peas taste funny ...
But it keeps them on my knife.

Now just a minute; that's an entirely reasonable basis to shoot...er, divorce someone.

He probably scooped them up and into the piece of bread with one hand. Been there done that, except that I would do it with my empty baked potato skin and hide them there.

I have a relative who eats his peas with catsup. Can't divorce a brother.

GEORGE: Oh, she’s got the hue. So, what’s going on with you and Melanie? I mean, I know you’re not getting married, but uh, things are happening?

JERRY: Well...actually, we kind of broke up.

GEORGE: You what?

JERRY: Well, you know, we were having dinner the other night, and she’s got this strangest habit. She eats her peas one at a time. You’ve never seen anything like it. It takes her an hour to finish them. I mean, we’ve had dinner other times. I’ve seen her eat Corn Niblets. But she scooped them.

GEORGE: . . . she scooped her niblets?

JERRY: Yes. That’s what was so vexing.

My mom used to love asparagus - she would cook it the normal way, either in boiling water or steam it.

Then she would strain it and put it in a bowl.

Then she would add about a cup of milk, mash it up, and start eating.

Practically made me hurl every time I ever saw her do it...

In the Three Stooges Moe would cover his knife with mashed potatoes and then use that to stick to the peas.

I had an old boss that would do this in restaurants. He would grab a spoon and fill it with butter. He would then stick the butter in his mouth and then he would take a bite of bread/roll. At least a spoonful of butter with every bite of bread. By the end of the meal, I bet he ate at least a cup of butter.

Needless to say, he’s not alive any more.

It starts so innocently, with separate tubes of toothpaste, then separate bathrooms, then, inevitably, the separate bedroom chambers, each with it’s own key assembly. Actually, I have met many women who insist on having their very own bathroom, the lucky ones don’t even allow their children to enter “Mom’s Bathroom”. You’d better not be caught in there!

Well, you know how it goes; it’s never really one thing. First it’s the toothpaste, then the toilet paper, she turns around and sees socks on the floor and when she sits on the toilet and he’s left the seat up it becomes justifiable homicide.

Even when trying to stab they tend to get away (especially if you make the mistake of eating from a clean plate.)

Well, at least he didn’t mush them all up between the tines of his fork. Revolting.

I like peas but there really isn't a graceful way to eat them. If you try to use a fork, they start rolling off as you bring the fork to your mouth, falling and bouncing all over the place. Stabbing them with the fork only captures a few at a time and it will take too long to eat them that way. You can eat them with a spoon but that's considered de classe and could earn you a divorce from your social-climbing spouse.

What I like to do at home is pour them into a paper cup. That allows me to funnel them into my mouth so I can get a whole bunch of them at once. I wouldn't do that in a restaurant however.

Eating corn is difficult as well. Especially corn on a cob. Unless you are at a backyard barbeque, stay away from corn on the cob at the dinner table. Not only will you gross people out but you will get the corn stuck between your teeth and then you have to decide whether or not you are going to free it with your fingernail or hunt down a toothpick. Either option will not sit well with your spouse and could earn you a divorce.

How to catch a Polar Bear.

Its a well known fact that Polar Bears love Peas.

So, cut a big hole in the ice and line it with peas. Then when the polar bear comes to take a pea, you kick him in the ice hole......

One critical issue is that many spouses should use their engagement period to know each other well enough

I knew a woman in her 40s who was getting rather desperate to get married. She was a career type who had amassed a lot of money but evidently found herself alone in middle age. I asked her if she was ever engaged. "Yes," she said, "but I called it off." Err, Why?--"Well, I was talking on the phone with him and he put me on hold to take another call." She told him that since the other call was more important that she was, the engagement was over.

Lucky guy to be rid of such a woman. Later a friend of hers set her up on a blind date with a handsome doctor. I overheard her complaining later about the friend and the doctor. "Just my luck, he's gay!"
